Spider causes driver to jump from car, causing school bus crash
A woman in the US caused a very serious traffic accident after leaping from her car after getting scared by a spider.
The Huffington Post are reporting that Angela Kip was very lucky nobody was seriously hurt after the bizarre incident on Friday.
Kip was reversing out of her driveway in Indiana when she is said to have spotted the spider on her shoulder.
This upset her so much she jumped from the moving vehicle, leaving her nine-year-old son in the back seat.
The quick-thinking youngster jumped into the driving seat to try and stop the car rolling into traffic but rather than press the brakes he put his foot on the accelerator, sending the car flying into a schoool bus that was passing their house.
Miraculously, nobody was seriously injured as the school bus had no passengers on board, the bus driver was unscathed and the boy walked away with only minor head injuries.
Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department, who told local TV channels about the incident, did not say if Kip would face charges.
